ESPN was covering the breaking news of Bobby Valentine's firing when the network accidentally aired a pre-recorded Tim Kurkjian segment, one that was presumably meant to air under the (unlikely) condition of Valentine returning as the Red Sox's manager for 2013. Oops. Chris McKendry did her best to bring viewers back to reality, though. Poor Kurkjian. All the work he exerted enumerating those great reasons for Valentine's return—Injuries! Terrible pitching!—just went to waste.

H/t to Tony.
